the law. they changed the law so that only a special election could fill a vacant seat. until then, the seat would have to be empty. mitt romney tried to veto that new law. but the legislature overrode his veto, thereby stripping mitt romney of his power to choose a replacement. that became a mute point because john kerry didn't win so he stayed on as senator. but then fast forward fife years. 2009. new president barack obama, the country embroiled in a big debate over national health reform. those against it were against it to the point of rage. and those wo who wanted it were excited to be on the cusp of achieving something they had failed to achieve for decades. at the time the democrat hs a majority in the united states senate, 60 seats is a filibuster super majority. that's enough to pass health reform. that majority for the democrats included senator ted kennedy. senator kennedy spent his career trying to pass health reform. it was his life's work. he had done it at the state level with that guy, mitt romney. he had led on the issue nationally for decades. it was his signatur
president's health care law adds a massive, expensive, unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our country's entire economy. we can't afford pinpoint and we can't afford to leave it intact. that's why i've been clear that the law has to stay on the table, as both parties discuss ways to solve our nation's massive debt challenge." mr. boehner, this is not what the election was all about. john boehner, if he is serious, will have to find out, but he certainly isn't very smart. the congressional budget office estimates, they show that the affordable care act will actually reduce the deficit. it doesn't make a lot of sense to get rid of a deficit reduction program, as part of a deficit reduction deal. the white house already rejected boehner's idea. obama care will not be part of debt negotiations. boehner is up to something here, don't you think? something else, that is. if you watch john boehner closely over the last two weeks, you can see him laying the ground work for the latest ploy. he call eed obama care the law the land, but also tr
now" with this fox news alert. just when you thought obamacare was the law of the land the supreme court has opened the door for a legal challenge. the liberty university, the religious institution founded by the late reverend dr. jerry fallwell has filed suit against obamacare and the supreme court says that suit has enough merit to be reheard by the fourth circuit court of appeals. essentially the liberty university folks are saying under religious freedom they should not have to live up to all the requirements under obamacare. the supreme court says that argument has merit. they kicked it down to the 4th circuit. depending what they decide, the supreme court could decide the same thing all over again based on rights of religious freedom. we'll continue to keep an eye on this. but a surprise and perhaps a momentous decision this morning from the u.s. supreme court. jenna: we'll con continue to watch that story a fox news alert. we're awaiting the outcome of a very pivotal meeting that could potentially ease the crisis in egypt or push that country into further chaos. that is one
, put himself above the law here saying the courts have no say, and obviously, there's a lot of people -- tens of thousands of egyptians -- who are not happy with it. morsi supporters say this was a necessary move to try to get rid of holdovers from the old regime of hosni mubarak. they say it's only temporary until they get a new constitution. but opponents are furious at what this president has done. they say he's put himself above the law, made himself into a dictator. also they're concerned that the new constitution that does get written could be heavily-islamist. so what we have here is a large crowd of demonstrators, already the start of violence, and all this comes just one day after mr. morsi was praised, praised effusively by u.s. officials for his role in mediating the israel/gaza fight. back to you in new york. gregg: it just goes to show you how quickly events can turn around in that region of the world. steve heir began, we'll check back with you a bit later on. thanks very much, in cairo. patti ann: and another hotbed in that region, the hamas terror group is now accusing

right would have been so quietly obedient to constitutional law. there's something out there on the right right now that is still uneasy with this defeat. searching desperately for an explanation of how the conservative caterpillar they had right there in their hands became the liberal butterfly now happily fluttering and, yes, defiantly free of them, and they don't like it one bit. i'm joined by rick hertzberg and "the huffington post's" howard fineman. rick, i wonder about this. this sense they have of almost royal ruling class identity with the white house. what do you make of it and their attitude before and after the election? they really weren't going to lose, and they haven't really in some strange way because they got the house. >> yeah. well, this attitude has built up over time over the years. they didn't really think bill clinton was legitimate because ross perot they thought cost him the election. they thought that obama's original election was a freak on account of bush being such a terrible president, and they were not equipped to deal with this defeat, an
believe it will take up challenges to the fert defense of marriage act which is a law signed by president clinton and the part being challenged is the one that says as far as the federal government is concerned, marriage can only consist between a man and a woman. what the law means is that in the states that allow same sex marriage, the federal government doesn't recognize them. if the challengers were successful and that part were struck down, it wouldn't mean the states have to grant same sex marriage, it would sim mr. i mean in the states where marriage is legal the federal government would have to recognize the marriage tax consequences, federal benefits and so forth. the court will also consider the challenge to the whole question of whether states must grant same sex marriage. that's the big california case, the prop 108 case and less certain the court will take that case, i think. those are the two biggies that we'll watch. we may or may not find out on friday whether they will take them. we'll find out friday or the following monday. >> there is also some late breaking news in ju

a new message from congressman boehner today saying that the president's health care law adds a massive expensive unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of ur country's entire economy, we can't afford it, we can't afford to leave it intact and goes on to say that's why he's been clear that law has to stay on the table as both parties discuss ways to solve our nation's massive debt. i made an error. i just realized i made an error and need to correct myself. that is not a new message. >> it's not. >> the same thing. if i'm not mistaken, correct me if i'm wrong, this goes back to the debt ceiling negotiations from last summer when they just threw that on the table. what speaker boehner and the republicans can't do legislatively and they've tried, time and time again to repeal obama care, and have failed, they're trying to, you know, thrust this in a situation in a must-do situation. and quite frankly, you know, the supreme court came out and said the law is constitutional, they've tried time and time again in the house for sure, in congress

. these are people who think the president has overstepped himself by declaring his acts above the law and above the courts and they're calling for him to come down. the chants of violence in the crowd this loud, this angry in a country that is divided is certainly high. much of the violence now is to s around the main section of the crowd. that is where the younger protesters are scuffling with police. in an effort to reduce the chance of violence the president's supporters from the muslim brotherhood canceled a march to keep one side away from the other. martha? martha: this is so remarkable. we saw the scenes when hosni mubarak was thrown out of office. then there was the election and democracy supposedly that put president morsi in place. we have the same crowds back into the square and they're protesting again. he made some moves to try to quell all of this and compromise a bit. were they meaningful though, steve? >> reporter: certainly we are seeing exactly the same scenes, sometimes exactly the same chants that were used against hosni mubarak now being used against the new egyptian presid

where one of the hosts, cheri jacobus, had questionable reasoning for photo i.d. laws. let's hear what she said. >> voter photo i.d., obama lost every one of those states. he can't win in a state where photo i.d. is required. so clearly there's something going on out there, and until there's a way to have something done about it, where when you report it, you know it's going to be looked into, the other side just says, oh, well, you're just poor losers and that sort of thing. >> your tone suggests you're a little upset with me. you're preaching to the choir. >> no, we get that. >> i'm with you completely. >> well, get this, president obama lost georgia, indiana, kansas, and tennessee not because of their strict photo i.d. laws but because of their conservative voting majorities obviously. >>> next, a whole new meaning for a campaign in shreds. we're talking literally. the remains of some documents with information about mitt romney's campaign motorcade went through an unlikely disposal process. they became the confetti found by bystanders at the macy's thanksgiving day parade. some par

reform law was historic, many people -- i actually assume that most of the five people at this table think that it's a shocking thing that america is the most powerful country on earth before the health care law was passed, had a massive number of many, many millions of uninsured people in the country when every other industrialized country has universal coverage. >> right. we do all agree with that, right? >> one of the more historic things, it's going to move millions of uninsured people into the ranks of the civilized world. >> and as the president promised, also not only is he going to put 30 million people on the rolls for health care, it's also going to save us money. so it tastes great, willie, and it's less filling. >> i don't know how he's going to pull that off. >> i don't know how you pull it off. but he said it, and i believe it. that settles it. >> how does the most industrialized country in the world -- it's saying that those two things are compatible. my god. >> why don't you move to luxembourg? >> i'm actually thinking about that. >> that would be awesome. >> yeah. >>
